Pinterest Challenge- Birthday Cake Truffles

Here's my dessert plight: my family hates sweets. I know. I don't understand how I'm related to any of them. I adore desserts. The thing about this treat was that I made it for a work birthday party. And it was amazing. Everyone loved it. And just look at them. They are a thing of beauty. This is the second time I've made truffles, and there is one thing I don't understand: how on earth do the people who make these make them so perfect? Chef in Training nailed the look, and I really don't get it. If anyone has a tip to dipping truffles, let me know.
 
 

 
Ingredients:
 
- 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
- 1/2 cups sugar
- 1 tsp. vanilla
- 1 1/2 cups flour
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- 1 cup yellow cake mix
- milk
- sprinkles
- white chocolate for dipping
 
 
1. Mix the butter, sugar, vanilla, flour, salt, and cake mix together. 
2. Add as much milk is needed to mix everything together.
3. Mix until it reaches a sticky consistency.
4. Add sprinkles into the dough and mix.
5. Scoop the dough into little balls and place into the freezer for 15 minutes to firm up.
6. Dip the dough into melted white chocolate an add sprinkles to the top.
 
Warning: white chocolate has a low burning rate. Melt in 30 second intervals only and stir.
 
Make sure you stick these in the freezer or fridge until you serve them. I loved these truffles. They were a great way to celebrate a birthday. I just really need to get this dipping thing down.
 
Do you have any tricks to make dipping a little easier?
